Fried rice

Living Etc - - ENTERTAINING ⁄ ETC -

Serves 4

1tbsp ex­tra-vir­gin olive oil 2 eggs, lightly beaten

85g finely chopped broc­coli 3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped 1tbsp finely grated ginger

1kg cooked brown rice

120g frozen peas

2tbsp soy sauce

Put half the oil in a large non-stick fry­ing pan over a high heat. Add the egg and make a gen­tle swirly mo­tion with the pan so it coats the base in a nice thin layer. Cook for 1 minute or un­til just set and the edges are be­gin­ning to turn golden.

Care­fully slide the omelette on to a board, us­ing a spat­ula. Once cooled a lit­tle, roll it up and slice it. Cover to keep warm.

Put the re­main­ing oil in the same pan over a medium heat. Add the broc­coli, onion and ginger and cook, stir­ring with a spat­ula, for 2 min­utes or un­til the broc­coli is bright green and a lit­tle bit soft (you’ll also start to smell the ginger in the air).

Add the rice, peas and soy sauce to the pan and cook, stir­ring a few times, for a fur­ther 3-4 min­utes or un­til the rice is steam­ing hot. Top with the sliced omelette and serve with some ex­tra soy or chilli sauce, if you like.
